Adequate product, terrible support

Akimo "akimo", Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: The unit is fine when it is working, but if you have any problems, and need to get support, heaven help you. Tiers 1 & 2 support is genuinely useless, and Tier 3 is pretty bad as well.

Decent Hardware, Old Software

Jon Elliott, Amazon
15 June 2013
  • Summary: In general, I've been disappointed by my ReadyNAS. While it may have been a nice device ten years ago, it unfortunately shows its age in its software. For a home user with modest experience with network storage, the ReadyNAS Ultra 2 seems like a typical device.

Bells and whistles don't work

B. Vandeventer, Amazon
23 December 2012
  • Summary: The first problem I had with this device is that there were no hard drive mounting screws, and the drives are too close together to use a standard screw (the screw heads bump into each other because the drive slots are too close together). So I ended up using the screws you hold lightplates on with.

Received a lemon

rainmakr, Amazon
2 December 2011
  • Summary: I must have received a lemon. Performance copying files was OK (45 - 75 MB/s), but Time Machine performance crawled between 216 kb - 2.9 MB/s. Also, it came with two Seagate ST2000DL003 installed. Less than 48 hours after first turning this on, one of the drives failed SMART tests.
